NOTE FROM TED: This talk contains a discussion and images of stillborn childbirth, which may be upsetting to some viewers. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail

Her son, Angel Tsang, was born still in 2016, at 28 weeks and 4 days gestation. Seeing that her deceased child had not been able to even have a glimpse of this world, let alone live his life, Harriet Cheng is determined to mark Angel's footprint on earth through her. With this in mind, she stepped on the TEDxHKU stage, sharing with what she has learnt about life from his death. Harriet Cheng is a mother of three, one of whom passed away in her womb. Since confronting the loss, she has added “child life specialist” to her list of roles, dedicating time to sharing how she coped with her grief at hospitals and churches. Culminating 5 years of learning, Harriet answers one of life’s biggest questions in her TEDxHKU talk: What is the meaning of life? This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
